Default Re: Club car ds can't get the steering wheel off

i've always used an air hammer with a flat bit instead of a chisel point. maybe 30 seconds at most to remove.

loosen nut, but leave it on about flush with top of shaft.
place knees under wheel with feet on dash area
press up with knees while hitting nut/shaft with air hammer

I have a 9 second video of this i'd send somebody if they wanna post it

Big f'in hammer and some patience. You could probably go back and find me posting the same thing here when I tried to get mine off. I pulled and tapped and yanked and gave up on it and went back and tried again. Finally whacked it good with a mallet and went to yank on it and it popped right off.

I just removed my '93 DS steering wheel. Borrowed (free) wheel puller from O'reilly auto parts. Drilled two holes through the steering wheel close to the hub (after removing score card cover). Inserted the pulling bolts and used big washers on back side of steering wheel. Popped off in a few turns of the main puller bolt. Drilled holes don't really show up on the back of the plastic steering wheel (there are many holes already there). I googled "club car steering wheel puller" and looked at the images. Picture was worth it.

Remove nut spray center hub splines with wd40 replace nut. Wait one day and the loosen nut while still having all threads on shaft covered, maybe 2-3 turns. Smack the crap out of center bolt with 16oz framing hammer until wheel pops up. I have done 3 ds carts this way a 83,97, and 99. It is helpfull to have 2 people when doing this one to yell "you weakling" while they use their knees to press up on the wheel while you strike the center nut.

I know this is an older post but I just replaced my steering wheel on my 99 CC DS...best way I found if your not keeping the old one...cut it off with a jig saw down to a small circle of plastic around the metal spine. Cut through the plastic till you hit metal, use a screw driver to peal remaing plastic off of the splined assembly and use a steering wheel puller from O'Reillys...took about 15 minutes and no beating with a hammer, no cussing like a sailor and a heck of a lot of less headaches. Maybe this will help someone since there are so many different ways.
